Jan 9th 2009 9:15PM Their article offends me because I cannot believe that some people are so shallow minded and completely stupid. It really rocks the foundation of the society I believe in!

Jun 12th 2008 4:57PM That's not really soon enough. This expansion once a year and 4 patches inbetween really doesn't give the game enough life as it is.

I know and I get what you mean by it, it would just have been a little nice touch that I'd have love to seen in so more people can see the issue of it. People still go "Why don't you do premades anymore?" and when I point out it was something Blizzard decided to do, they say "That sucks, seems stupid of them"
Apr 25th 2008 10:17AM I have a little comment to add to one paragraph of your otherwise great and spot-on article.
You write that in order to succeed in arena, you'd need to be organized, strategic and make use of voice communication - hence it takes a lot more effort in-order to get any progression and, in the end, gear.
With 2.4, Blizzard pretty much labeled everybody who did fixed inside BGs a grinder or a leecher who only does it for the honor points, shrugging off the PvP guilds who actually play premades in BGs competitively, versus other premades.
We, who take the effort and time to organize, lead and think of strategies were just stepped upon by Blizzard who have blatently not said a thing about it yet, letting us suffer with 45-60+ min queues and still meeting PuGs.
I'd make an assumption here and say that the population of Hardcore Arena Players (The ones that Blizzard loves) is pretty much equal to the people who once played PvP BGs in premades hoping to go against other premades (The ones that Blizzard apparently hate).
So why should they be rewarded better for taking the effort to organize 2, 3 or 5 people every now and then to the ones that have to organize 10 or 15 and make sure everybody does just right? Because they do it in Blizzard and E-Sports love child, Arena.
This got a bit longer than I thought it would be, but I just thought it might be a bit interesting to hear.
